  10. This report courtesy of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning. This report was written on May 10, 2018. Lake Ontario report: According to Capt. Andy Bliss on Cold Steel Fishing Charters: A little tip for when you are faced with very turbid/dirty water. Switch to brighter baits and larger baits. We were presented with mud water Sunday so I put a few Bay Rat long shallows in and the fish really seemed to pick them out of the spread. According to Capt. Andy Grisenthwaite of Broad Horizons Charters: Browns in the shallows are active and bass are starting to wake up. If you chose to sort through them, there are some quality browns along with a few steelhead and an Atlantic or two. Lake trout in 120 to 155 feet of water are doing well with some good size too. We chose to go for kings one afternoon early in the week and were not disappointed. Springtime is awesome! So far the 2018 season is off to a great start!
